The $1 trillion infrastructure plan proposed by US President Donald Trump signals win-win opportunities for China and the United States, according to experts.
US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao told the Boston Globe last Friday that she expected Trump’s $1 trillion plan to debut this summer after the administration tackles tax reform.
“We’re on track,” Chao said of the infrastructure bill. “There’s a great deal of discussion over the most difficult part of the initiative, which is funding it.”
You’d be nuts to exclude us graf.
China’s record in the past decades in building massive infrastructure projects has been widely recognized in the world. By the end of 2016, China ranked No 1 in the world in the mileage of high-speed rails, expressways and urban transit systems, according to the country’s National Development and Reform Commission. Seven of the world’s largest container ports are also in China.
The rest of China Daily’s stories are equally sunny side up, as you’d expect. We’d love to show you the whole thing, but the Globe chose not to include the insert in yesterday’s ePaper.
The hardreading staff is first to acknowledge that replacing the Boston Herald’s longtime Inside Track diva Gayle Fee is a daunting task. And, all due respect, new Track Gal Olivia Vanni has gotten off to a largely undistinguished start.
Earlier today the hardreading staff noted that this ad had appeared in yesterday’s Boston Globe.
We emailed to Stat Cats to ask whether Sunday Stat would be a one-off or published regularly. And here’s what the redoubtable Rick Berke replied:
Got your message.
Depending on interest from readers and advertisers, we’re hoping Sunday STAT will become more than a one-shot offering. Already, we’re hearing from advertisers who are interested in another edition this summer. And we’ve been in discussions with some newspapers around the country who are thinking about STAT as a print supplement.
Let me know if you have other questions.
Be of good cheer, splendid readers! Today not only marks the return of the swan boats to the Boston Public Garden, but it’s also #OneBostonDay, as Mistah Mayah declares in this full-page Boston Globe ad.
There is, however, no One Boston Day ad in today’s Boston Herald.
The hardreading staff isn’t wired enough to be at the New! Improved! Fenway Park this afternoon for the Red Sox home opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates (huh?), but we did take the time to check out the Boston dailies for all the hopeful/gleeful advertisements that normally accompany the start of a new season.
And there were . . . none.
Nothing in the Boston Globe, nothing (big surprise) in the Boston Herald.
